Recently i've got Squid running, it works perfectly! But I also want my clients use POP3,SMTP and NEWS throught my proxy. I know Squid is only for HTTP but is there an add-on to use socks? Or maybe an alternative?
You don't want to use SMTP through squid - it is not secure. It could allow anyone to relay mail through your proxy. Plus there is not a sinlge reason to cache or filter SMTP traffic anyways. For SMTP go through your regular gateway/firewall instead.
But the only way to connect to the internet is through my Debian server. So I have to do something to forward those ports. I don't want clients connect directly to the internet. I'm just asking for a solution to give clients access to POP3, SMTP, NEWS etc. throught my Debian server.
